Mild fruity esters, toasted malt and hints of fruity/citric hop. Crisp and smooth with a moderately full mouthfeel. Lots of malt on the palate with a pungent fruity alcoholic ester and spicy/citric hop character. Hop bitterness is merely just enough with more flavour middle to end. Little bit of fat chewy caramel malt with a drying chocolate which gives a cookie like malt flavour. Finishes off with a drying grain, hop leaf and a touch of residual sweetness.
